wow lots of Kinect haters here, it's way betetr then the playstation Move [which by the way Sony has declared to be not their best idea, due to alkc fo sales] further it has ahd updates doen to it to help with sensor issues, and it beat sales records in it's frist day of release. the Wii U version is going to be interesting..being that the graphics are going to possibly be on par with aassassin's creed. Thoguh with Crysis 3 being a release game for Wii U, the graphics might be better. As for following the Secret Invasion storyline, I hope they give us some more characters as DLC later on.
Ubisoft readying motion-control adaptation of Earth's Mightiest Heroes; game will be based on Secret Invasion comic storyline instead of blockbuster film.
The Avengers are assembling on consoles after all. Ubisoft today confirmed that it is developing The Avengers: Battle for Earth for Kinect-equipped Xbox 360s and the Wii U.
According to an Associated Press report, the game will make heavy use of those systems' motion control capabilities. As for the story, it will feature about 20 characters from the Marvel Universe with a focus on Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, and Thor. While those are the lead characters from the recently released blockbuster film The Avengers, Ubisoft's game will actually be based on the comic series. Battle for Earth will be inspired by the Secret Invasion storyline, in which the shape-shifting alien Skrulls activate sleeper agents who have been living among humanity undetected for years.
Explaining the choice to go with motion controls for The Avengers: Battle for Earth, Ubisoft VP of sales and marketing Tony Key told the Associated Press, "This is the perfect type of game for that because these characters are very action oriented. They're always fighting and throwing things."
No release date has been announced for The Avengers: Battle for Earth, but Ubisoft will reveal more about the game at next month's Electronic Entertainment Expo.
It's a movie tie in. If you were expecting anything in the first place, you should check your priorities.
Kinect really isn't the way to go for your punching action needs.
However, I look forward to the Wii U version, it seems like a good way to show off its new graphical power.
way to mess this up give me a beat them up game not a keicet game
i will wait to see what you do with the Wii U version
Stinkery-Doo! What a waste of tie and money, developing this game. UbiSoft orally services dead dogs for wine change, lately.
IMO Ubisoft can be rather "hit or miss" when it comes to these titles. If they concentrate on making a Quality game and stick with a good story and game-play elements this could be really awesome. On the other hand being a licensed franchised game like this could be it's downfall. Here's hoping this will be a awesome game.
Oh dear god when I first heard that Ubisoft was gonna make an Avengers I was excited. I thought the game could have been handled by the Montreal, Shanghai team the guys who have made quality games before and they would take it seriously ( like Rocksteady did for Batman : arkham games) then I saw the word Kinect and all hope is not lost.
Game from movie adaptations sucks but for them to follow the comics storyline is a good choice i think.
Guess Ubisoft have decided to get out of the 'making a profit' business if they're seriously wasting a license like this on a piece of crap like Kinect, which has a proven track record of appallingly low software sales, even for big name titles.
Wii U I can't say about at this point, but if this is a launch title for that, it may do well enough off the back of the usual "launch desperation" boost it may get.
Kinect version though? Guaranteed failure.
The movie kicked ass but like everything the game is going to suck because they've made the wrong choice......idiots!
@Supabul Just like nobody buys games on Kinect... though saying that, the bilge that actually comes out on Kinect probably doesn't deserve to be called "games".
The movie was great. Unfortunately things have a habit to go wrong when they try to make a game of it. I hope this can be an exception though.
